Board Games: The Essential Question – Issue #1: Introduction and Catan

Hello. My name is James McCarthy, and I am a board game player of 20+ years history and a board game collector of about 10+ years history. My thanks to Flannel for inviting me on to Many Sided Dice to express my opinions regarding the hobby of board gaming and what I consider to be... Continue Reading →

VtM: Pathogens – A fresh overview, before plunging into the campaign notes.

When we started up VtM: Pathogens, the hope was to introduce some people to V5 and make the most out of the system and updated metaplot. We did a pretty good job inventing a rolling campaign about the gothic American South--often filling in some negative space left by the official fluff, sometimes veering away from...

“Vampire: The Masquerade – Pathogens” or “Some Resources and Things From my Recent V5 Game(s)”

I love Vampire: The Masquerade. It was the first actual tabletop RPG I was introduced to and the first real "nerdy" fandom I ever discovered.

I've made projector rigs and proxies and all sorts of stuff. I like to have a lot of simple feel at the table, you know? My games rely... Continue Reading →

The community is the hobby, the hobby is the community, and we owe each other more – #Blacklivesmatter

Over this past week, millions of people are grieving for George Floyd and others who have been the victims of violence by those meant to protect us. Protests have rightfully engaged in nearly every major city in the country and we're watching a season of unrest and bravery that I'm both proud to see and... Continue Reading →

“Alright, Fine. I’ll Update This Site Regularly” OR “Quarantine Blogging”

Clearly, it's been a long while since I updated the Many-Sided Dice Publishing blog here. Many could read that as a lack of interest or drought of time for it... both would be right. In the time since I last updated, a lot has changed. I've moved cities for some new career stuff, lost my... Continue Reading →
